    The line still looks to be at 30 points and has not moved since we announced that we have even less depth in the secondary due to suspensions, that richardson probably won't play, and that block is hurt. Anyone know why?

    Because the betting hasn't changed. Lines aren't about handicapping the game, they're about splitting the wagers 50/50 so the house can clear their cut on the push.

    This was my guess, there's probably about $200 total riding on this game.

    If gambling were legal, I'd be banging Stanford. There's no way we cover.

    No ****, but you'd think the betting would change after that news.

    Why? When's the last time you saw a line bigger than 30 pts? More importantly, who's going to bet a team to cover a 5 TD spread? It's a sucker game nobody's going to lay money on.

    I'm also surprised that more money hasn't come in on Stanford. I'm guessing that people placing bets aren't following things closely enough to even know about our suspensions. :huh:

    The line actually opened around -27.5. The day before suspensions were announced line moved up to 29.5-30 at most places and is now back down to 29 this evening.

    laying 30 points isn't something good gamblers do a lot.

    CU has dropped 13 of its last 14 vs Top 10 teams being outscored 38-12. Take CU and the points!

    I'd rather lose this game by 35 points with 3 or 4 penalties than by 20 points with our usual 10 penalties. A blowout from a more talented team over disciplined, substandard players is easier to take than knowing that we could've competed if we didn't have our heads up our own asses.
